Hearts win !!! Hearts win !!!!!!

As mentioned in a previous post, the 2012 Scottish Cup Final was an all Edinburgh affair for the first time in 116 years, the match was played in Glasgow of course.

In a thrilling match Heart of Midlothian dominated and crushed cross town rival Hibernian 5-1 handing Hearts their eighth Scottish Cup victory, and first since 2006, while stretching Hibs string of failures in Cup finals to ten, their last win was in 1902.

The other beneficiaries of the Hearts win were St. Johnstone. As Cup winners Hearts move into next year's Europa League Cup play, which should mean they can make payroll on a more regular basis, but Hearts had already qualified for Europa League play so that opens a spot for The Saints.
